    The Republican nominee is lawyer Tim Griffin of Little Rock, a former aide to former President George W. Bush and a former interim U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of Arkansas

    Republican need to vote in November to remove this Democrat, once shes voted in, it will be near impossible to get her out of the Obama team

    Have some of the voters of the second district just lost their minds? Joyce Elliott’s record supports illegal aliens, teen abortions, and homosexuals. She is not just liberal, she is a radical liberal. She makes Osoma Obama look moderate. We do not need her even as the mayor.
    Tim Griffin and John Boozman are the logical choices for Arkansas in November. We must stop the growth of socialism in our country, secure our borders, and stop the massive spending. By electing Griffin and Boozman we will be putting Obama in check until 2012.

    She's for everything that is now propelling the country towards massive default. If you want more of the same and to help remove the last barriers propelling this nation down the slippery slope of more spending on worthless programs and more govertnment control then she is the best bet. History has shown this type of government control and taxing will result in ruin, but people keep swallowing the false claims.

    She is even more liberal than Vic Snyder and that's saying a lot!

    Obama is now acting to clean up the huge deficit. He is planning to start by having all the overly fat bureaucratic federal agencies cut their budgets by 5%. One of Elliot's priorities is to cut the federal deficit. She is going to be great. While I never vote on the basis of race, having her in Congress will really help Little Rock bring in the convention business! We lose so much business because everybody associates us with Central High. Elliot will be exactly what the Little Rock economy needs! You go, girl!

    Joyce Elliott was a star in the Arkansas Legislature, and now she is on her way to Washington. Come November, I hope to see the Arkansas delegation looking more like the people of this state, who aren't all white guys, and a few of whom value hard work, education, fairness and decency!

    If you believe the unions supported Halter, you haven't seen anything yet. It is hard to believe the people elected this far left person. I always believed the people in the 2nd district were about half nuts, now I know that they are far left nuts who deserve what they get. Go Obama, unions, spend, spend, spend. Pop, you need to get informed or at least get some help.

    All the repubs need to do to win come Nov is show the picture of the dems standing and cheering the mexican president and the picture of Nancy looking like a jackass with the other dems after they shafted the people with the health care bill. I hope to see those two pictures every day up to election day. This election is all about miss nancy, mr reid, mr obama and spend, spend spend.
